TibetBack

Tibet is an autonomous part of China. It is bounded on the north and east by Central plain, on the west by Kashmir and on the south by Nepal, India and Bhutan. Most of Tibet sits atop a geological structure known as Tibetan plateau which includes the Himalaya and many of the highest mountain peaks of the world. Some of the mountain peaks that have been the source of attraction for people around the world for years are Changtse, Lhotse, Makalu, Gaurishankar, Mount Kailash, etc.

Tibet is probably the only destination among the Himalayas that’s not known for its adventure circuit as the rest are. But do not underestimate this destination as just another Trans-Himalaya area of the Himalaya. There’s much more to Tibet than Buddhism, monasteries and cold desert like weather.

The beauty and charm that this region includes is really splendid. Although most of the parts of Everest are more known as the parts of Nepal, trekking in this part of the world gives you some of the unexplored routes and views which really produce some strange and fresh feeling among the trekkers.

Apart from trekking, there are many more things awaiting the travelers to go through them and gather some of the newest and most remarkable moments in their life. Mountain biking from Lhasa to Kathmandu traversing the high roads in between gives a view of six major passes and some of the spectacular monastery town like Gyantse, Shigatse and Shegar is equally exciting.

Tibet also carries high religious importance. Lhasa, the land of Gods which is also the capital of this autonomous region, has numerous scenic spots and historical attractions among which Potala palace, Norbulingka, Drepung monastery, Jokhang temple, Ramoche temple, etc are most renowned. For well over a thousand years, pilgrims have journeyed Kailash Mansarovar to pay homage to the mountains mystery, circumambulating it is an ancient ritual devotion that continues to this day.

Activities of Tibet

Pilgrimage Tour
Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mount Kailash (6714m.), the famed holy peak in Western Tibet.  Kailash has long been an object of worship for four major religions. For the Hindus, it is the domain of Shiva. It is also the abode of Samvara – a multiarmed, wrathful deity worshipped in the Chakrasamvara Tantric cycle of Tibetan Buddhism. The Jains of India also revere the ...

Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts
Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts Location: Annapurna | Type: Adventure, Nature Lovers | Tags:NepalNOW, Trek, annapurna, nepal, nepal now The Annapurna region, the most popular tourism destinations of the country, is located in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. Following the powerful earthquakes of April and May 2015, the extent and severity of earthquake-related structural damage and geologic hazard were widely believed to be limited, but remained unknown. With funding from SAMARTH-NMDP and on behalf of the government of Nepal through the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, an assessment team was dispatched from June 25 to July 2, 2015 to this region to observe and record seismic damages that occurred along the main trekking routes and select villages as a result of the earthquakes. The team was comprised of a structural engineer and an engineering geologist, supported by a professional mountain guide and local conservation officer familiar with the region. The objective of the rapid reconnaissance of the region was to a) develop a baseline understanding of the extent of earthquake-related damage, b) advise on the overall trekking safety of the region’s routes and c) provide recommendations on repairs or risk mitigation that will inform tourism recovery and commercial readiness strategies that are currently being developed by the government, its international development partners, and Nepal’s tourism industry at large. The aim of these efforts is to promote tourism back to Nepal which will support the nation’s economic recovery. The findings of the structural and geotechnical rapid assessment of the region are summarized in this report.
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal Jonathan Irish, a Contributing Photographer of National Geographic, had visited Nepal in 2007. In an Instagram post published on the official @NatGeoTravel account last evening, he told how eagerly he wants to revisit Nepal and espcially after the devastating quakes. He explained that a tourist visits Nepal to trek the world’s highest mountains but they return because of the amazing people. He also urged the travellers to keep Nepal on the top of their bucket list. Here’s what he originally wrote on the post shared with 4.9 million followers of Nat Geo Travel along with this photograph: cover “I miss Nepal. There are some places that stay with you for a really long time. For me, Nepal is one of them. I hiked to Everest Base Camp way back in 2007, it has haunted me ever since. There’s a common saying that goes like this: most people come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people. I think that’s really accurate. Walking among the biggest mountains in the world is something special. But it’s the amazing people that make this place unforgettable. I need to go back sometime soon and see this beloved country again especially after the devastating earthquakes recently. Now is the time to support Nepal. If you haven’t been yet, put it to the top of your bucket list.”
